Ghosts of Christmas Past

Written by: & Directed by: Scott Rawson and Christina Beller

Playing: November 11 - December 18, 2011


Obnoxiously happy during the holidays? You’re not alone. Hate people who are obnoxiously happy during the holidays? You’re really not alone. Broom Street Theater presents Ghosts of Christmas Past, written and directed by Christina Beller and Scott Rawson, a series of stories that examine every shade of the holiday spirit.

We all have tales of Christmas past, be they hauntingly awkward or joyfully chaotic. Ghosts of Christmas Past offers a satirical take on the absurdity that surrounds the Christmas season. You’ll see a hilarious look at the horror that one boy experiences on Christmas morning, a heartwarming happening in a Bingo hall, and a curious story of friends who would rather celebrate Halloween. This will be no Dickens of a Christmas.

Broom Street veterans and newcomers Brandon Barwick, Don Dexter, Mary Fairweather Dexter, Ali Lemus, Scott Frazier, Eric Holz, Jayshaun Jacobs, Matt Kenyon, Tiffany Schreiber, Jay Timmerman, and Stephanie Turner make up this strong and eclectic ensemble cast.

Come enjoy tales of Christmases both sweet and strange, and rediscover what this special time of year means to you. Performances are at 1119 Williamson Street from November 11 to December 18, each Friday and Saturday for $9 at 8 PM and Sunday for $6 at 2 PM.
